Movies I've Watched Recently || T A G





I was tagged by Daminika for the Movies I've Watched Recently Tag.
So here we go.
M o v i e s   I' v e   m o s t   r e c e n t l y   w a t c h e d: 

Blue Bloods
For a modern TV show this is pretty 'clean' and 'conservative'.
So far I've watched seasons 1-5 
I was very disappointed tho to find they have made quite a few episodes
promoting gays.

The Magnificent Seven 1960


The Magnificent Seven 2016

I personally liked this remake better
than the original which is weird for me. :P

The Finest Hours

This movie was ok for a one time movie,
but not worth the money to buy.

Firewall


Little Women 1933

Love this movie!

well hope you all enjoyed!

Far Away Places//Bing Crosby Song



Marita

Far away places
with strange sounding names
Far away over the sea

Those far away places
with the strange sounding names are
Calling
Calling me
Goin' to China or maybe Siam
I wanna see for myself
Those far away places
I've been reading about in a
Book that I took from a shelf
I start getting' restless whenever
I hear the whistle of a train
I pray for the day I can get underway
And look for those castles in Spain
They call me a dreamer
Well maybe I am
But I know that I'm
burning to see those
Far away places with
the strange sounding names
Calling, calling me
Me

~Marissa
